With pre-orders now in full swing and a plethora of tweets, Facebook posts and YouTube videos proclaiming its price to be beyond reasonable (probably), there’s no doubt that 2016 has started a little rough for Oculus Rift, and perhaps VR in general. It’s not all bad though, when you consider there’s just as many people hyped up about finally getting a hold of the black goggles after all this time.
So, what if you really, and I mean really want one? Luckily for you, dear reader, I’ve compiled five important notes to consider before clicking the buy button. Unless you already have. Have you?
Being a first gen product comes with its fair share of problems, but if the current state of the gaming industry has taught us anything, paying your way into a testing phase comes with some benefits. Now I say testing phase loosely since I’m sure the Oculus Rift has been rigorously put through its paces. What I mean here is, as a brand new product and in the same vein as a new console release from Sony or Microsoft, we all know how bumpy those early months can be.
